Emily Ramshaw Decamps DMN for Texas Tribune

I cited an anonymous source on Friday (shame on me!) when I told you that Emily Ramshaw was taking a gig with Evan Smith at the Texas Tribune. Now comes her e-mail to colleagues and friends:

Friends, colleagues, delightful sources:

Just wanted to let you know I’m taking the plunge. I’m leaving The Dallas Morning News, my first job and home for 6 years, to be an investigative reporter for the Austin-based Texas Tribune, a Politico/Pro Publica hybrid for Texas government and politics.

Here’s the NYTimes article on the venture:

My last day at the DMN is Aug. 14. I’ll send out another message when I’ve got my new e-mail address, but you can always reach me at [redacted].
